Interview with the Author
Q - So what makes the Feast of Weeds series special?
A - It’s a mix of things, really. When I set out to write the series, I wanted to create something that I would love to read. Since I’m drawn to the post-apocalyptic genre, especially dystopian novels, that’s where I started. I thought about the end-of-the-world books I’ve loved—you know, classic Stephen King, Octavia Butler, Max Brooks. I’ve always found thrilling those stories with big epidemics that reinvent the world and show what characters are really made of. I also love getting into some of the science, like genetic engineering, that would make the situations in a book plausible. Any story that promises me an intense, dark adventure is going to get my vote.
The Feast of Weeds series is a mix of these genres. I wanted to create an intense, fast-paced adventure with strong female protagonists. I also wanted to do something different than the standard survive the zombie-hordes stories—though I’ve enjoyed plenty of those stories too. In Feast of Weeds, you’re going to have competing pathogens, and what might seem straightforward at first becomes something completely different later on. Even though my cast of characters are all teenagers I’ve definitely had plenty of adults write me about how much they’ve enjoyed the series. I think Feast of Weeds hits the sweet spot of older Young Adult that will appeal to plenty of adults too.
Overall, no matter what your age, the Feast of Weeds series is designed to keep you turning those pages.
Q - What order should I read the books in?
A - I’ve written the series with the plan of having readers go through the series in order. Technically each book is a stand-alone story, but I think the complete series would be most enjoyable in the following sequence:
--Germination (prequel short novel)
Q - Why should readers give these books a try?
A - Even though Germination is a prequel short novel, so, a shorter read than many readers like, it hit #5 on the New York Times bestseller list and #8 on the USA Today bestseller list inside the Dark Humanity box set in January 2017.
The Feast of Weeds series is a fast, dark ride that turns the stereotypical zombie genre on its head! I like surprises and mysteries and thrills, so you’ll find a lot of that in the series...nothing is what it seems.
